Darien house description

Our “Red Door Cottage” is located in the quaint historic district of Darien, Georgia. It is a comfortable, pet-friendly 2 bedroom, 1 bath home built in 1906 and lovingly restored with all the modern 20th century conveniences. The home features high ceilings, hardwood floors, central heat and air conditioning as well as ceiling fans in most of the rooms, for those that want that true southern feel. The entire home is showcased with many original works of art, from local artists to the owner's own artwork.

The cozy covered front porch, with a porch swing, opens into the front living area with our original “red door”. This room is the place to relax when there is a chill in the air as it has a gas fireplace, large, comfy sofa and 2 leather chairs. The sofa pulls out to a queen-sized bed and makes a great sleeping area if needed. The room directly adjoining this would have been the formal dining area in 1906, but we have decorated it with a long, comfortable sofa,w/chaise lounge and 32” flat panel TV and it instantly became the family room. The kitchen has a new electric range, new refrigerator, new dishwasher and a lovely large window over the sink that fills the space with light. It is furnished with all the dishes and utensils needed to prepare meals, new toaster oven, microwave and coffee pot. The room adjoining the kitchen is a great place to eat (the table seats 6) and has 2 walls of windows. It has tile floors and is equipped with a gate for the opening, making this the place to put your pooch, should the need arise.
The 2 bedrooms are similar in size but one has a black iron queen-sized bed featuring “Waverly” Southern Magnolia bedding, an antique bureau and mirrored vanity. The other has 2 twin beds, decorated with a bright, whimsical feel. Both rooms have original artwork on the walls.
The black and white tiled bathroom has a tub/shower combination and a modern pedestal sink. The house also has a new clothes washer and dryer.
Out the back door, near the kitchen is a large, new screened porch with a table that seats 6. We're sure this will soon be our favorite hang-out.

Situated on a quiet corner with live oaks and plenty of Spanish moss, we are just 3 blocks from the Darien River Waterfront Park and Boat Dock. Rent or bring your own kayaks, don’t forget your fishing gear, camera, sunscreen and bug spray. Our town is small but features a number of great restaurants, a wine bar, specialty shops and a fantastic art center, all within walking distance of the house.
If its beach you want, St. Simons Island is 20 miles south and Jeykll Island, with the historic Rockefeller village/resort and plenty of surf and sand, is just past that. For an exceptional beach or fishing outing, hire Kelly at the Darien Waterfront Inn to take you by boat (30 minute ride) to Georgia’s best kept secret places.
With Savannah (60 miles north), historic Jekyll Island (22 miles south), old plantations to discover, old Forts to tour, nature trails/tours a call away and tons of delicious, fresh, sweet Georgia shrimp & fish to devour, find time to relax and enjoy Darien.
Be sure to check out the link below to the town of Darien's on-line visitors guide There you see pics of the town and descriptions of all the area has to offer.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: I am an artist and work in an art gallery on Cape Cod. My husband is a Civil Engineer and works for an environmental consulting company. We live in an old home (circa 1850) in the oldest town on the Cape. We have 2 dogs, 2 cats, & chickens. We have a vegetable garden, enjoy canning (& eating!) our veggies, kayaking, touring historic towns & houses and traveling.

Why Darien:
We discovered Darien on our usual trip South to Florida. We fell in love with the historic town, the area and the warm, southern hospitality of the town's folk that welcomed us like family. Not nearly as crowded as Florida (or as pricey), Coastal Georgia has so much more to offer than just beach. We love New England, but hope to make Georgia our permanent winter home some day
